Not necesarily.

A "simple semaphore" cannot be used from elisp.

Locking the file (with lock-buffer, though that does not work on
Windows) would be possible. IIRC, Stefan (who wrote that comment)
didn't want the second Emacs instance to get an error while trying to
write the file.

But, truth be told, I don't remember the issues well and I could be
misrepresenting his intention. I suggest you take a look at the
emacs-devel archives, a few months before 22.1 was released.
